To The Board of Selectmen; 
Gentlemen t 

The Cemetery Commissioners wish to submit the following report for the 
year ending December 31»19Ul. 

The Cemetery Superintendents are to be commended on the excellent cond- 
ition in which the cemeteries have been kept, in spite of an especially dry season.

safety and the full length dri^e in the front has been completed. In Fairview Cem- 
etery another section has been rid of brush and grass and some grading dohe.Town 
Water has been installed in the West Cemetery and we expect to have it installed 
in Pine Ridge Cemetery next spring.Many of the avenues have been graveled in Hart 
Pond Cemetery and part of the fence painted. 

The Superintendents have been given police authority in an effort to stop 
a certain amount of vandalism that has been going on in the cemeteries. 

We wish to thank lot owners for their cooperation in helping to keep the 
oemeteries in good conditior..

REPORT OF THE CHELMSFORD TOWN FOREST COMMITTEE. 

The Chelmsford Town Forest Committee since setting aside of lands for this 
purpose in the Town at the last annual town meeting has met with H.O.Cook, Director 
of the Division of Forestry in the Department of Conservation for State of Mass- 
achusetts and have gone over these lands. 

The recommend* tic 1 :: of Mr. Cook are as follows s 

1-There should in some of these lands be made available through opening up 
old wood roads passage for fire fighting apparatus so that the forest land 
would be more accessible in case of fire. 

2-The area which includes the Town Dump should have a strip of ploughed gr- 
ound surrounding the dump to prevent fire which frequently occurs in this 
spot from spreading to adjoining lands. 

3-The Gage lot of some 75 acres would lend itself best to forestry activities 
inasmuch as there is quite a number of small seedling pines comingup in this 
area but which are being smothered by the growth of weed trees about them. 
This condition could be remedied at small expense by freeing these trees 
of the weed growth around then andthen as xthese small pines catch on the 
areas whereseedlings are not present could be spot planted to eventually 
make a good stand of pine. 

With our country using two billion cubic feet of timber each year,more 
than we are producing , if any thought is to be given to the needs of succeeding 
generations, we must try to do our small part by at least conserving with a little 
help by man that which we ^already have and which in growth is playing a loosing 
game among weed trees of little value. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Luther W. Faulkner 
Edward B. Russell 
Arthur Batchelder.

The annual report of the Forest Warden for 19Ul is as follows! 

The year just passed produced the most unusual and dangerous fire conditions 
in our wooded areas, being very dry as well as very windy throughout, from the day of 
the first fire on March 6th ar til the last on December 23rd. 

Of the 173 fires occuring during the year, all with the exception of a very 
few, were extinguished before covering any large acreage or causing much damage. 

Chelmsford is very fortunate in having an observation tower located in the 
Town, by means of which fires are discovered and accurately located at their start. 

The new truck purchased last year and put into operation in the summer, is 
an improvement ofrer the old, being of greater water capacity as well as greater 
power, and works very nicely. 

As expected, a thortage of labor for handling fires developed early in the 
year, making necessary, many calls for units of the Fire Dept.,in order to obtain 
help enough to prevent fires from getting beyond control. 

For this year the outlook 6eems to be much worse in regard to help, because 
the men who were formally available, are for the most part, either in the Army or 
on defense work, including many former Deputy ^ardens. 

66 



Two changes in the Fire Laws go into effect this year, first the fire permit 
law has been changed so that permits for fires will not be issued during the month* 
of April and May. 

A new law requiring patrols be established in the town on days of extreme 
fire danger goec into effect this year. 

In conclusion, all citizens are urged to us* extreme care with fires this 
year, and to clean up and burn all brush and refuse before April if possible.

H.M.Sturtevant.

REPORT OF CHELMSFORD W.P.A. FOR I9I+I. 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen, January 19,19li2. 

Town of Chelmsford, Massachusetts. 

Honorable Sirsi 

As W.P.A. Sponsor's Agent of the Town of Chelmsford, I herewith 
submit to you and the citizens of the Town of Chelmsford, Mass; a report on W.P.A. 
activities for the year of I9I4. 

During the year of 19Ul»the following projects were in operation. 
Extension of water mains by the Chelmsford Water District for a distance of 7^" 
miles, closed December l^^l+l.Our sewing project operated from January 1 I9I4I to 
June 18 19l|.l»when it was closed for an indefinite period, anc has not as yet been 
re-opened t 17 women were employed atthe time the project was closed. Our Survey 
Project v«.8 also operated from January l,19i+l and was closed in June 25,19^1, and 
has not as yet been re-opened;7 men were employed when the project closed. 

On December 2j.,19i|.l the Water x roject sponsored by the Chelmsford 
Center Water District was completed. That project was started in July 29 19U0. 
While that project was in operation several Lowell W.P.A. workers were transfered 
to Chelmsford to hasten the completion of the work. 

In June 9,l9i±l the federal Government requested that 25 Chelmsford 
W.P.A. workers be transfered to Fort Devens on Federal Projects in operation there; 
and the Tovn paid their transportation. The Chelmsford men were transfered back to 
our local water projects on November 12, 19^4-1* 

On ^ecember U» 19^4-1 a water project sponsored and financed by the 
East Chelmsford Water District was started.lt involves the laying of approximately 
3^ miles of mains, fittings, hydrants, etc. 

At the present time there are 36 Chelmsford men employed on the 
project and 51 from Lowell. 

After our water project is completed, we do not know whether we will 
be allowed to start any other new projects;or whether the Chelmsford men will be 
transfered on to defense projects which have priority; such as Fort "'evens; Bedford 
Airport, or somewhere else that the Federal Government may designate. 

The following are projects that could either be completed or started 
as of to date. 

Complete East Chelmsford Water Project. 

Completion of work on t£e Varney Playground. 

Start High School Athletic Field Project. 

Start a Road Project including 13 roads in various sections of Town. 

Start our Moth Project. 

The above projects have all been approved in Washington; and money 
allocated for the same. 

Our sewing projects could be re-opened, but at this time it jeems 
rather doubtful that they will. 

Due to the present existing emergency, it seems rather doubtful that 
any new projects, other than defense projects, will be put into operation. 

We also have a Surplus Commodity Project which employs 2 men;and a 
total of 5 Chelmsford W.P.A. workers, are working away from Chelmsford, on defense 
projects. 

67 



I wish to thank at this time the Board of Selectmen, and Highway Department, 
Water Commissi oners, and all others, who in any way contributed towardmaking our 
W.P.A. activities in the Town of Chelmsford a success. 

Respectfully submitted 
W. P. A. Sponsor's Agent 

Frank J. Lupien, 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF FIRE ENGINEERS. 



TO THE HONORABLE BOARD OF SELECTMEN, 
CHELMSFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, 



We have the honor of submitting herewith the report of the Board of 
Fire Engineers for the year I9I4.I • 

The Board was organized as follows *- 

Harry L. Shedd Chief. 

John W. Dixon Ass* t. Chief . 

John M. Kemp Ass' t. Chief and Clerk. 

The Board re-appointed as follows »- 

District No.l W.T. Johnson. 

District No. 2 Joseph D. Ryan. 

District No. 3 "Walter Edwards. 

District No. U Henry G. Quinn. 

District No .^ Charles House . 

The roster has remained practically unchanged thus insuring Town of a 
department manned by a group of loyal and efficient firemen. 

The equipment and the fire alarm by constant supervision have been kept 
in first class condition and ready for instant response whenever the demand is 
made for their use. 

The department has responded to 86 alarms of fire in Town and a number 
of calls out of Town. 

In the latter part of April when serious forest fires raged in our 
neighboring Towns we had at one time four companies hard at work .We received at the 
time from the State Fire Mar shall, the Commissioner of Conservation and the Selectmen 
of the Towns, the highest praise for the services rendered. 

We have rendered every assistance possible to the Forest Fire Warden, 
and have extinguished a number of grass and brush fires. 

We are planning for and hope to have in operation some day a tower for 
the drying of hose which will add greatly to the life of the fire hose. 

We regret having to record the resignation of Harry L. Shedd the Chair- 
man of the Board and Chief of the Department for many years. 

During this time he has diligently and devotedly given his time and 
labor and due to his rare judgement and foresight has been responsible for the 
highly efficient condition of the Department at the present time. 

His loss will be keenly felt by his associates and the Town officers 
as well as all the men of the Department and in his administration he has set up 
a standard that has brought credit to the Town and honor to himself. 

We extend to our Police Department our hearty appreciation for their 
£ererous assistance whenever it was required and to all others who have co-operated 
when needed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry L. Shedd.

GREETINGS: 

The Park Commissioners submit their report as followsj 

Ty,is Board ret early in 19Ul and organized with Claude Harvey as 
Chairman, Walter Merrill mz Secretary and John Reedy as its third member. 

The care of the Parks this year was divided up with John Reedy having 
the North, Claude Harvey the South, West and Westlands and Walter Merrill having

crease at the next Town Meeting to allow us to purchase stone curbing £0 inclose 
the oval plot at the junction of Main and School Streets in West Chelmsford and 
along the Westerly side of H.S.Perham Park at the Westlands. 

At this time we wish to thank the townspeople and police for their

to their wishes.

A great change took place throughout the year 19*11 which saw 
private industry absorbing nearly all employable men as a result 
of the national defense program, which was later followed by the 
outbreak of war in December, 1941. 

As was to be expected, welfare cost dropped to a very low 
level which decrease should continue during 19*12. 

We must expect a large increase in Old Age Assistance for the 
coming year, due to legislation passed In 19*11 by the State legis- 
lature, which becomes effective April 30, 19*12. In brief it calls 
for an increase in payments to many of our recipients and also ex- 
empts all children from contributing to support, whose incomes fall 
below a certain standard set up by the State Department, depending 
upon the number of dependants the son or daughter may have. 

I respectfully refer you to my report of last year, wherein I 
commented on the proposed change in the Old Age Assistance law, 



Ik 



merit be made. The vacancy will be filled as the result of the Election* The 
Board of Health feels that the town has lost a valuable man in the resignation of 
Mr. Knapp. He assumed his duties as a member of this department with the spec- 
ific intent of safeguarding the health of every man, woman and child within the 
confines of the town, and to this end he did his job extremely well. At this 
time, we wish Mr Knaop every success and good health in his new field of endeavor. 

Early in the month of May a group of citizens from the West lands section of 
the town, appeared before us in a special meeting, armed with complaints relative 
to the Westlands Dump. As a result of this meeting the Board decided to close the 
dump and to re-locate it elsewhere. This action was no sooner put into effect, 
when a hue and cry went up from a large number of residents residing in other parts 
of this section, as well as in the Centre. This necessitated further action by 
the Eoard and after conferences with various departments, it was decided that the 
dump would be enclosed with a high fence of wire, a single entrance made available 
and an increase in wages to the caretaker, with new duties levied upon him as to 
the keeping of the dump in a more sanitary condition. We feel at this time that 
the situation has greatly improved over its former state, and we shall welcome 
any further complaints, should it lapse to its previous condition. 

The North Chelmsford dump which was put into a suitable condition two years 
ago is not being used for the purpose intended due to the fact -that it is located 
too far away from the thickly settled districts. Instead, rubbish and waste are 
being strewn along the streets, vacant parcels of land, and most anywhere that is 
convenient for those who are committing this act. All this is brought to your 
attention again because it is a serious problem. Ymt Board of Health endeavored 
to correct this situation at the annual meeting of the townspeople held last March, 
but met with defeat at the hands of the Finance CoTnmission and a few others. 
But this problem still exists and sooner or later this town will shoulder the ex- 
pense of collection of rubbish etc" ^ Thi s~mbney will be well"and" wisely spent " 
and asicTe from the fac"t that a service will be rendered to the taxpayers, an un- 
sightly and unheal thful menace will have been corrected. We feel that this matter 
cannot be taken care of in any other way. We could paper the walls of the lower 
town hall with written complaints of people asking what they are going to do with 
their garbage and rubbish. We should refer them to those people who know all the 
answers, but have yet to come forward with any sensible solution. We are open to 
suggestions. 

The department handles its finances well during the year. We were forced to 
ask for an additional few hundred dollars for dump care. The number of cases in 
the various state sanatoriums have been greatly reduced, thereby effecting a large 
saving in our aid account. We received the usual amounts of money from the grant- 
ing of licenses, etc. 

The Board has been called on numberless times during the year on complaints, 
etc. and we feel that we have settled differences and difficulties to everyones 
satisfaction where concerned. 

We would call your attention to the report of our agent on further matters 
pertaining to this department. 

During the course of the year, we were informed by an act of the State Leg- 
islature, the Office of Inspector of Plumbing would be placed under Civil Service. 
The Board of Health insisted that any applicant for this position must have his 
domicile within the confines of the town. Heretofore this office has bean filled 
by an out of town resident.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH AGENT AND SCHOOL NURSE 

Mr Raymond Greenwood, Chairman 
Board of Health, Chelmsford, Mass* 

Deer Sirs: 

Following are the diagnosed contagious diseases reported for the year 19Ul» 
(A case is not recognized as being diagnosed unless seen by a physician.) 

Chicken Pox •• • 10

At this time I would like to refer the parents to the laws relating to Pub- 
lic Health. "A householder who knows or has cause to believe that a person in 
his fanily or house, is infected with a disease dangerous to the public health, 
should give notice thereof to the board of health of the town where such household® 
dwells, unless a physician is in attendance. This is necessary in order to— pre- 
vent the spread of communicable diseases, and cooperation in this matter is re- 
quested. Every sick child should be thought of as suffering from a communicable 
disease until it is proved otherwise. The parents should not permit their child- 
ren, if sick, to attend school and play with others until it is certain there is 
no danger of spreading a disease. 

Children who heve been absent five days or more must have a certificate from 
the school physician. 

In May, 19^-1 diphtheria immunization clinics were held at the Center Town 
Hall with the school physic- ans Dr. Arthur G, Scoboria and Dr. George E. Carriel 
in charge.

I hope that parents will plan to have their children immunized against diphtheria 
if they have not already done so. Latest statistics show that one of every seven 
children under five years of age taken sick with Diphtheria dies. 

A dental clinic has been held at some school on each Wednesday of ■the school 
year, until May 3 J., 19^41 when Dr. Charles Fn.rrington resigned his position as 
school dentist.

All pupils have been given a physical examination by the school physicians, 
Dr. Arthur % Scoboria and Dr. J, E. Boucher. The boys in the football team and 
the boys and girls joining the basketball teams were given ri.-^id examinations. 

A Meeting of a temporary health council was held in the lower town hall in 
regards to the continuing of Fell Child Conferences in the town. Dr. Robert 
Archibald and Miss Gertrude Martin from the state department were present at this 
meeting. It was decided, however, not to continue them for the present.

I would like to thank the Garden Club, Community Reading Circle for their 
contribution of toys and the various P.T.A. organizations for their loyal support, 
I should like to thank those persona who have donated used clothing from time to 
time. If there are any people who would be able to volunteer their services in 
transporting cases to 7,'altham, clinics etc. or could give some time to typing 
health material, I feel it would be of great value to the town. The national 
emergency has made this even more apparent than before. 

In closing I wish to thank the members of the Board of Health for their 
assistance. I also wish to thank the various officials of the other departments 
with whom I have come in contact for their cooperation.

To the Citizens of the Town of Chelmsford: 

We herewith submit the report of your School Committee for 
the year ending December 31, 1941. 

The conditions due to the present world war are such that 
many changes have taken place and undoubtedly many more will occur. 

These conditions are already reflected in the teaching 
personnel. Due to resignations and retirement we have lost several 
of our teachers. The insistence of the State Department of Educa- 
tion has resulted in the establishment of a special class for 
mentally retarded children. The replacements and appointments to 
fill the positions thus created are dealt with in detail in the 
report of the Superintendent of Schools and for this and other 
information we recommend that you read his report. 

With the addition to the High ochool and the Westlands 
School our fuel consumption will necessarily be greater. The 
addition of new classes will mean more books and supplies. These 
additional- items, together with increased cost of fuel and 
supplies, has necessarily been reflected in our budget. 

The appropriations for repairs and maintenance have for the 
past several years been so small that the buildings have suffered as 
a result. All the wooden buildings require painting and some re- 
quire expensive repairs before this can be done. Rather than 
spending money to have these buildings repaired and painted, it 
would probably be more economical to have all these buildings brick 
veneered. Over a period of years the savings on fuel and painting 
would more than pay the initial cost of this work. 

We have had requests from both the teachers and janitors 
for pay increases. Our teachers' salaries are below the average 
paid to teachers in other cities and towns. Our janitors' salaries 
are below the average paid to unskilled .laborers. We have given 
these requests much thought and study. After comparing the 
salaries paid by the Town of Chelmsford with those paid elsewhere 
and having in mind the rising cost of living, it is our recommenda- 
tion that the salaries of both the teachers and janitors be 
increased. 

By the time this report is published the addition to the 
Westlands School will have been completed. We have added four 
classrooms, an assembly hall, four toilet rooms for pupils, two 
toilets with outside entrances for those using the playgrounds, a 
teachers' room and an office for the principal. A new heating 
plant has been installed which heats the entire building. The old 
hot air ventilating system has been removed and we now have in each 
classroom a unit heater which draws and heats fresh air directly 
from outside. This air, after circulating in the classroom, is re- 
moved by a ventilating duct from the building. The entire building 
has an outside wall of brick veneer which is not only pleasing to 
the eye but has the added advantages of making the building much 



11' 



easier to heat and much cheaper to maintain. This new addition, 
including the changes and improvements to the old building, was 
completed at a cost lower than the cost of the original four-room 
building. 

Your Committee has spent a lot of time and thought to 
maintain the high standards of the Chelmsford School System and we 
hope that our accomplishments and recommendations will meet with 
your approval. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Wendell P. Harvey 
Marjorie M. Kiberd

REPORT OP SUPERINTENDENT 

To the School Committee: 

My fourteenth annual report is hereby submitted to 
you and to the citizens of Chelmsford. 

TEACHERS 

In the High School Catherlnce W. Mooney applied for 
leave of ahsence on May 1st and later resigned, and on 
June 9th Donald H. Fogg was given leave of absence when 
he was called into military service. Morris L. Budnick 
resigned in the summer. At Princeton St, Mrs. Lilla B. 
tfcPherson retired at the end of the year. At Quessy 
Josephine M. Quigley resigned February 1st, and at the 
Westlands Vera G. Rafuse at the close of school. 

For the positions in the High School Blanche E. 
Robinson, a graduate of Boston University, who had been 
teaching for a year in Brewster Academy, and Mary E. Pol- 
lard, a graduate of Lowell Teachers College with a master's 
degree from Boston University, who had been teaching for 
a year in Hardwick High School, were engaged. For the 
science and mathematics position Gerald A. Ivers was trans- 
ferred from Highland Ave. 

For the Highland Ave. principalship M. Weldon Haire, 
a graduate of Bowdoin, who had been teaching in the Fair- 
field, Maine, High School, was chosen. At Princeton St. 
Sally T. Conlon was transferred to the 4th grade, and 
Ebba A. Peterson was given the 8th grade, a position she 
had held previously. M. Pauline Sullivan, a graduate 
of Lowell Teachers College, was given the 3d and 4th grade 
room at Quessy. 

At the Westlands School seven teachers are now em- 
ployed. The 1st grade holds its sessions in the Community 
Building, the 3d and the 5th grades use two rooms in the 
old part of the building for a morning session, and the 
4th and 6th grades use the same rooms for an afternoon 
session. The 2nd grade, and the 7th and 8th, use the 
other two rooms for the customary two sessions. B. Muriel 
Bridges was transferred from the McFarlin School to the 
7th grade in the Westlands, and Josephine F. Brennan and 
Eleanor Gray were engaged for the 3d and 5th grades, and 
Hope Fielding for the McFarlin position. All are 
graduates of Lowell Teachers College. 

The Department of Education has been demanding for 
a number of years that Chelmsford comply with the law 
which requires that a special class be maintained for chil- 
dren who cannot profit by the usual methods of instruction. 
The teacher of such a class must hold a certificate granted 
by the Supervisor of Special Classes. Doris E. Hevey, 
a graduate of Lowell, with five years of teaching experience, 
was certified conditional on her taking further courses 



119 



and was elected to the position* The class uses a room in 
the McFarlin School, wich is provided with special material 
for hand work. Pupils who would profit by this special 
class work may be brought in from other schools. They are 
designated for this course by the travelling state clinic 
conducted by Dr. Wellington. 

In any group of first grade pupils there are some 
for whom learning to read is extremely difficult. Such 
pupils fall behind their mates, become discouraged, and as 
they go on in the grades fall in other subjects. They need 
individual attention outside the regular classroom, 
Margaret D« Sousa, a graduate of Lowell, who had had special 
training ir. remedial reading, was engaged to do such work, 
and baa classes numbering 66 in all in the McFarlin School, 
Princeton St., and East Chelmsford* There pupils are 
now interested in the reading program and are making pro- 
gress. Seme of them are showing improvement in other 
work and will probably make their grades this year. 

SALARIES 

Earlier school reports have called attention to the 
clearly established fact that teachers' salaries in Chelms- 
ford are low as compared with what is paid in towns of the 
ssjoe approximate size and wealth. Last April the maximum 
for men was increased $100, for reasons indicated in my 
report of last year. As was to be expected, the women 
teachers both in the High School and in the elementary 
at once began an agitation for increases. When their 
requests were presented they were given assurance by School 
Committee and Superintendent that the salary schedule would 
be studied before the next annual budget was prepared and 
that an attempt would be made to secure such funds as might 
be necessary to cover any increases granted. One point 
was conceded without argument. For many years teachers 
in the "igh School and principals of elementary schools 
have received each year an increase of §100 until the 
maximum was res.zr^e±, ,j rhile elementary teachers have received 
only a }5C increase. The elementary teachers were assured 
that the present committee would do away with this dis- 
crimination. 

Since last April conditions have changed very mater- 
ially. There is no necessity for proving that costs of 
living have sharply advanced: every householder is conscious 
of the fact. Estimates of the increase range from about 
eight per cent to a much higher rate. As a result teachers 
everywhere are asking for higher salaries. The State 
Teachers Federation and many local associations have been 
collecting data. A Federation report of December 6, 1941 
states: "There is a growing movement in Massachusetts 
toward improved salaries." This reports cites thirty-seven 
towns and cities In which increases had already been 
granted, such as $100 from Sept. 1941, a *200 increase to 
every teacher to start Jan. 1, 1942, a 10> increase, full 
restoration of former pay cuts, etc. The Chelmsford 



120 



teachers are asking for a flat Increase of $200 a teacher 
to date fror. January 1, 1942. 

Janitors 1 salaries are less than the earnings of 
many unskilled workers of the present tine. They are 
asking for a flat increase of *26C tc late from Jnauary 1st. 

r::i- ::-: - ant: c-rc^tds 

No "buildings were painted in 1941. Tr.r usual re- 
pairs were made to plumbing, heating equipment, and reefs. 
The old locker room at the High School were converted into 
lunch rooms by providing tables at a coat sf |2TO« A new 

smoke pipe of heavy iron was put into the McJprlir. School, 
♦263. Window shades cost *292, A roofed entry ami bu Lit 
in the rear cf the 3.uessy School to take the place of the 
"culkhead ar.i other changes made to keep water cut of the 
basement, about ulOC . 

When conditions warrant the expenditure , these im- 
provements should be considered: 

Painting of the wood buildings. Highland Ave,, 
South, and East are in very poor condition. 

An entry in the rear of the South Che Ins fori School, 
grading, and a new cement aprcn. Water now gets into the 
basement. 

Painting inside of McFerlin School* 

Providing a suitable athletic field 5 for the High 
School and McHarlin, and fencing the fieli.

Mr. George S. Wright 
Superintendent of Schools 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts 

My dear Mr. Wright: 

I am pleased to submit, herewith, my twelfth annual report 
as principal of Chelmsford High School. 

The total enrollment up to January 1, 1942, is as follows:

Total 253 234 487 

This total is 45 less than the all time high record of 
January, 1940. It is interesting to note that there are still, 
as in the past few years, more boys than girls. The much smaller 
eighth grade enrollment of last year is one contributing cause 
for the drop in the enrollment of the high school this year. The 
fact that there is not a course in domestic science for girls or 
any special vocational course for boys is another cause for the 
drop in the enrollment . 

Many high schools of the State provide these vocational 
courses for those boys and girls who are more interested in the 
practical arts than they are in the more academic type of educa- 
tion. Where vocational courses are available In the high school, 
more pupils are interested in the work they have to do and stay 
in school longer, thereby making the school of greater value to 
every one in the town. 

During these uncertain times when we do not know how long our 
boys and girls will have the opportunity to get a formal education, 
I believe that it is the duty of teachers and parents to do every- 
thing possible to have each pupil get the maximum benefit for the 
time he is in school. We do not know how soon our boys or girls 
will be called to do some kind of defense work. We do know that 
the more education they can get before they are needed, the better 
work they can do if they are called. 

Parents can help their children a great deal by seeing to it 
that all homework Is done. Each pupil should study at least two 
hours daily on homework (contrary to what some pupils will say) 
and more time is often necessary if college certificate grades are 
maintained. Parents can also help by supporting the school in 
teaching courtesy, politeness, and the right attitude toward the 
school and its regulations. The more time that is necessary for a 
school to use in correcting misconduct, the less time there is to 
help those pupils who are cooperative and anxious to do their best 
in whatever they undertake.
